    That doesn't mean it's a bad game, but with an obviously younger slant to the presentation and only 25 games to play -- a good chunk of which are eerily similar to other game types -- this isn't a shindig that will be able to lure the whole family to the PS2.
  2. While some of the humor may not be overly appropriate for younger players, this is a family-style outing that will certainly entertain.
  3. A slightly unsettling but basically enjoyable game. [Nov 2006, p.84]
  4. The grown-up Buzz! games might make you feel smart, but this makes us feel evil. And sometimes, that's way more fun.
  5. With a slightly restrictive control interface and uninspired, downright samey minigames, the mature gamers looking for a slice of party fun (soggy jam sandwiches optional) may wish to seek the likes of Buzz! Big Quiz or Buzz! The Music Quiz. Put simply, this is one for the tots.
  6. It looks pretty simple, but it's got a cuteness that will appeal to a wide range of players, and enough mini-games to keep players interested for a good while.

    The ideal gift for children who want to participate in the Buzz games but find the questions too difficult. Adults would be best advised to stick to the other Buzz titles though.
  8. More kiddie button-bash than pub-quiz. [Nov 2006, p.86]
  9. Jungle Party's presentation is actually surprisingly good.
  10. Buzz Junior: Jungle Party has all the fun of the buzzer in a much more child friendly game - and if they ask you to play along it really isn't the end of the world, it is quite good fun. Until they beat you, of course.
  11. This is a solid mini-game collection, and although it is aimed at kids, it does a good job of keeping the simple controls, but making the games different. This game is definitely for kids, but it is something that won't drive you nuts to play with your kids.
  12. The simple nature of the games is a double-edged sword. Anyone can play, but the lack of depth means there may not be any lasting appeal.
  13. Young or old, Jungle Party will make you laugh and keep you coming back for more - especially in multiplayer. [Nov 2006, p.103]
